Newton's Gravity corrected and Pioneer 10 anomaly

In summary, Garth Iorio suggests that the Pioneer anomaly can be explained by modifying the gravitational attraction of the Sun. He claims this has been ignored by scientists due to its implications for the Equivalence Principle. He also suggests that his findings should be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

In short he claims that Newton's law must be slightly corrected on base of material difference between mases in interaction.
Given also is one calculation that predicts difference between classical (Newton's formula) and new formula by about 0.3%.
Computer calculation of P10 and Voyager trajectories seems to support his formula to the great extent.

Basically if you modify the gravitational attraction of the Sun you have to explain why it does not show up in the orbits of the Outer Planets and tests of the Equivalence Principle.
Answer to the first part of the sentence :
P10 is made of much heavier elements than outer planets.
As for Equivalence Principle (which is imbeded in a very core of GR) this is a good question.Send the author of formula e-mail (he provided his e-mail on the page).He can explain that too.He also proposes new experiment regarding that matter.

Nobody dropped him an e-mail?
For a long time I haven't read such a loosy attempt of P10 anomaly curve
fitting.
He even informed NASA about his "great" discovery...

Publish in a peer reviewed journal and have the 'discovery' assessed and we can then discuss it here on PF.

Yup,I thought it was a 1st April joke,but wasn't that date.
Poor man,he probably didn't hear of Cavendish and Eotvos type experiments...

Related to Newton's Gravity corrected and Pioneer 10 anomaly

1. What is Newton's gravity corrected?

Newton's gravity corrected, also known as the modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND), is a theory proposed as an alternative to the traditional theory of gravity, which is based on Newton's law of universal gravitation. It suggests that the laws of gravity change at low acceleration or large distances, which could explain the observed discrepancies in the rotation curves of galaxies.

2. What is the Pioneer 10 anomaly?

The Pioneer 10 anomaly refers to the unexpected deceleration of the Pioneer 10 spacecraft as it traveled through our solar system. This deceleration could not be explained by the known gravitational forces acting on the spacecraft and has been a subject of scientific debate for decades.

3. How does Newton's gravity correction relate to the Pioneer 10 anomaly?

Some scientists have proposed that the Pioneer 10 anomaly could be explained by the modified Newtonian dynamics theory, as it suggests a change in the laws of gravity at large distances. This theory could potentially account for the unexpected deceleration of the spacecraft.

4. Has the Pioneer 10 anomaly been solved?

The Pioneer 10 anomaly remains a topic of ongoing research and debate. While some scientists have proposed explanations such as Newton's gravity correction or thermal recoil forces, others argue that there may be other factors at play that have not yet been discovered. Further research and analysis are needed to fully understand the anomaly.

5. Are there other spacecraft anomalies similar to the Pioneer 10 anomaly?

Yes, there have been other anomalies observed in the trajectories of spacecraft, such as the Pioneer 11 anomaly and the Cassini anomaly. These anomalies also exhibit unexpected deceleration and have sparked scientific interest and theories similar to those proposed for the Pioneer 10 anomaly.
